You can fix trash cultivation level but you can't fix stupid. I've read the manhua and it is much more entertaining and tolerable than the adapted Donghua, Spirit Sword Sovereign 2nd season is garbage it's no wonder why it's hard to find online.
In the second season, the tournament arc that displays ones martial strength and ability to join one of the 4/5 major Martial halls. Chu Xing Yun shows exceptional talent by winning this tournament and joining Yu Yun's masters Martial Hall as an inner disciple in order to learn about methods to save his beloved from her life threatening ice-blood condition.
This donghua has
been very vague in the details since the beginning, the pacing is very fast which leads to a lossy way of plot development and as a result many plot holes.
I get the feeling the characters exist in this Donghua to serve as a stepping stone for Chu Xing Yun because in the Manhua, he treats everyone with respect if they treat him with resect like Poisonous Yan. When Poisonous Yan agrees to follow Chu Xing Yun as a slave, he gets better treatment but throughout this season I haven't seen this treatment and Poisonous Yan's following is one sided. Furthermore,
Chu Xing Yun is such a tryhard in the Donghua, he is arrogant and can't back it up with his reincarnated powers. He has the wind attribute which allows him to seemingly teleport but for some reason in his battles this season he decides it's a good idea to use his sword to outwit his opponent head-on which is stupid. Then at the end he magically uses the spirit power absorption and never uses it again it feels like his powers are just used once and never mentioned but replaced with new techniques. He literally owns martial arts techniques and he has trouble fighting people at the same age as him that didn't reincarnate, that's just embarrassing.
Art & Sound
Bad art and bad sound. I could barely find this series online and it had terrible subtitle translations. If it wasn't for the Manhua, I wouldn't be persisting but this is a hit or miss watch.
